Every year in February I try to think of new things that I can discuss around the theme of love because let’s not be ignorant, it is that month AND it is a leap year – that’s meant to be special right?! Last year we celebrated the fact that the best things comes in twos and looked at the word of Twoprov (not as couples but the way the comedy format is stealing and owning the stage), we have also looked at the comedy film and comedy as a whole! This year we head to the world of music.
Some of the songs I love are not necessarily my favourite songs, instead I find this is a sort of completely different topic all on it’s own. A song that I really love must do a few things to me – firstly make me smile because of the experience of listening to it whilst also making me feel a lump in my throat. All of these songs that I talk about over the next 29 days are songs I really do love and adore and I think their music construction, lyrics and song as a whole are wonderful.
At the start of this paragraph I said that these songs may not be my favourites – well that is true, whilst some may be ones that are, there are ones that are not but that does not mean I truly respect them as songs and these songs make me happy and sad at the same time I know they are in a completely different category and that is what the difference is.
Day 24 – Over and Over Again, Nathan Sykes
Why This song?
I listen to a lot of new music through Spotify and one of the playlists that I follow is new music Friday and I find a lot of songs and artists through this. I used to like The Wanted, and when I saw that Nathan was releasing solo material I was really interesting to hear it. I really enjoyed the debut single and then this song came along and I fell in love with it. This song is so beautiful and really do adore it.
Why do you love this song?
It is just beautiful, I am a sucker for piano when it is used in a great way and this song just does that. The lyrics are wonderful and really make this song just so seamless. He did a version with Ariana Grande as well but I think her voice ruins the initial impact the song had and overtakes the talents of Nathan.I don’t listen to this song very much but when I do it just puts a smile on my face, it is a beautiful song and I cannot emphasise that.
